On tap in a pint glass.

A- It was a very bright and light, clean looking golden color, some orange hues. The pure white 1-plus finger head faded to athin film leaving fat rings of lacing.

S- Citrus hop aromas just slightly outpace the maltiness. Very laid-back.

T- Hoppy, but on the lighter side of the floral and citrus flavors. Some maltiness and caramel.

M- Quite some carbonation, but again, lighter than I would have expected. The hops have little zest and finish. A bit of alcohol.

O- Not great but enough flavor, tang, and drinkability to make me go back to it.

Serving type: on-tap
